Monday, May 25, 2009, 10:37 AM - Jordan J199Just get the Jordan J199 started. Looks like quite a bit of cleanup is needed... but not as bad as the MG one.
Sunday, April 19, 2009, 06:43 PM - MG 1/12 F1-2000I took the just-finished MG F1-2000 to SVSM Kickoff Classics 09 yesterday and I am lucky enough to win the 1st place in open wheel competition auto category and best competition auto award.
My modeling buddy Mark Rawlings' super Porsche GT2 won the closed wheel competition auto category and best automobile award... Big congrats to Mark
Today, I delivered the MG F1-2000 to my happy client's home and here is how the F1-2000 looks like in her new home, alongside with tons of Ferrari collections
Guess what, my client has tons of cool Ferrari collector items... Do you know what these are?

Friday, April 3, 2009, 10:43 AM - Modeling RelatedHmm I am considering doing 1/20 Modelers Jordan J199 as my next project. I want to build a Italian GP version. That means it needs a new rear wing and a 'Zepter' decal on the top of the airbox.
Our F1M fellow modeler Alex built one not long ago and it is really nice..
It's time for some fun...
Sunday, March 22, 2009, 10:17 PM - MG 1/12 F1-2000Alright, finally I got this monster done after so much difficult work!!! I am happy with this out of the box build... but definitely no more MG stuff...
Detailed building diary will be on modelersite.com soon.
What's next?? I am thinking either Jordan J199 or Ligier JS43 conversion.
Sunday, March 15, 2009, 12:36 AM - MG 1/12 F1-2000Well, almost there!!
Wheels are painted. The quality of the wheel is not nice. It is more like a toy. I spray paint it with TS30. I feel the front tire is abit too wide,.
Engine and transmission part. The main part is painted with TS30. Then CF with modelers CF decals and some SMS CF decals. After than, semi-gloss coat with Gunze acrylic top-coat spray can.
All suspension arms and uprights are attached with 30 min epoxy glue. The whole thing is damn heavy. Epoxy glue is the only choice for white metal stuff...
Next, exhaust pipes + rest of the misc stuff, like camera, antenna etc etc.
